‘A macabre and thoroughly entertaining world’ – Jim Butcher, author of the Dresden Files

Private eye John Taylor swore he’d never return to the Nightside, the hellish netherworld under London. But now a young girl is missing . . .

John Taylor is a private detective with a difference. He’s a child of the Nightside, with a supernatural ability – he can find things that are lost.

But it’s been a long time since Taylor left that hidden netherworld where fantasy and reality co-exist and it is always 3am.

He has no intention of ever returning . . . until a distraught mother arrives at his office with a tragic tale and a bag full of cash. Joanne Barrett wants her daughter back, and she’ll pay a small fortune to make it happen.

Of course, Taylor knows exactly where the girl is. The Nightside is calling him . . .

Something from the Nightside is the first title in Simon R. Green’s New York Times bestselling Nightside series.


Simon R. Green's Nightside series is a delight from beginning to end... The Nightside books are, unashamedly, all about having a bloody good time reading works that have more than their fair share of "ics." Fantastic, comedic, sarcastic, caustic and heroic are just a few that spring to mind

A fun read, lots of action and some pretty wild character. I get the feeling Simon Green is setting up a series, and I'll be willing to read more of them

Great fun ... I really enjoyed and would recommend to anyone that likes urban fantasy. There is a hard edge to the book, which I think enhances the chaos and mayhem
